This Prize amounts to £700, as determined by the following process: a) The 7OTB Team with the most points from their total five highest-scoring selections wins the Prize.
b) If that does not produce a clear winner, we calculate each 7OTB Team’s aggregated goal difference (the total of goals scored minus goals conceded).
c) In the event that this still does not produce a clear winner, we calculate the total of the goals scored across each of the 7OTB Team’s players’ Win selections, and the 7OTB Team with the highest total number of goals scored wins the Prize. (The Draw does not count for this calculation).
d) If two or more 7OTB Teams are still tied, the 7OTB Team whose final individual player(s) selections were submitted and received by 7OTB last in the week preceding that week’s competition compared with the other tied team(s) will be the loser(s). The official timestamp of receipt held by 7OTB will be used to determine the winner.
For the avoidance of doubt, for a Team to be eligible for the opportunity to win this Prize, the Team must have a minimum of five Members and a maximum of seven Members. Each week a Member's selections must be submitted by 2.45pm (GMT) on a Saturday. Each Team Member's selections must be made independently, in accordance with 3.6 above.)

b) If that does not produce a clear winner, we calculate each remaining player’s goal difference (the total of goals scored minus goals conceded).
c) In the event that this still does not produce a clear winner, we calculate the total of the goals scored across all the remaining players’ Win selections, and the player with the highest number of goals scored wins the remaining Prize. (The Draw does not count for this calculation).
d) If two or more players are still tied, the player whose selections were submitted and received by 7OTB earliest in the week preceding that week’s competition will win the Prize. The official timestamp of receipt held by 7OTB will be used to determine the winner.
